With "The Bank Job" coming out this weekend, which I hope does better than 10,000 BC even though I know it won't. I wanted to get some discussion about you favorite movie based on a true story.

Mine is "The Mothman Prophecies". It is such a fucking creepy movie and is very underrated.

The Mothman Prophecies? Based on a true story?

In that case... my favorite movie based on a "true" story is The Amityville Horror.

Obviously Mothman is unproven so "true" is subjective, but the event @ the end of the movie is an event did happen and the sightings are strongly alleged to have occurred.

Fargo. Even though the screenplay was not a single event that happened, the events portrayed were taken from real crimes.

PSSSSST the Patriot is about as historically accurate as Johnny Tremain. yeah it's Historical Fiction but not based on actual person, it was going to be based on the Swamp Fox but he had a dark past so they made up some characters.

The original (shame I have to even say that) Texas Chainsaw Massacre, even though it's only very loosely based on Ed Gein.

I liked The Executioners Song. Tommy Lee Jones played Gary Gilmore to perfection.

Shawshank was based on a true story?

Wasn't it a short story by Stephen King?

Master and Commander. While the 'story' may be a mixture of a few of Patrick O'Brien's book elements, the historical accuracy of the naval warfare depicted is absolutely genuine, as is the depiction of life on board a vessel such as HMS Surprise.
